An exhibition of paintings by Julie Spahr
November 7 – December 28, 2014
Opening Reception: Sunday, November 9, 4:00-7:00 pm
Artist’s Statement: I prefer the inspiration of painting “en Plein aire” whenever
possible. I am a colorist, energized to
paint what I see, in a realistic, but impressionistic style.
My deep connection with the natural
world, in the past, and through my art,
has led to my immersion in landscape
painting. I am continually sharpening my
awareness and “seeing” at new levels,
striving to portray the light forms and
magic before me in my paintings.
My subject matter is inspired primarily
from the rolling Pennsylvania countryside and the rocky Maine coastline. I
love to paint on my travels, especially in
Provence and areas surrounding Florence, Italy.
“The landscape listens and we hear it
call our own name” –Emily Dickinson
